Heirloom. An old favorite dating from 1954. Developed by the University of Florida especially for hot climates and known for its reliability to set fruit at high temperatures. Produces firm, meaty tomatoes. Large vines help shade fruit to protect from sunburn, and will need to be staked or caged. Plants in our test garden, where the growing conditions are ideal, bear an average of 50 pounds of fruit over a 6 to 7 week period. Resistant to fusarium wilt (F).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hearty These tomatoes are easy to grow. This is my second year and now I am finding tomato plants popping up in various parts of the yard. You can also grow new plants from cuttings. This one is a keeper!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best tomato ever! Planted a little early in Texas we didnt have a late frost. ( before april 11th). These are the most flavorful and juicy tomatoes I ever grew. A tomatoe sandwich a day is a delight. My Mother 92 years old said these tomatoes reminded her of what tomatoes tasted like when she was young, delicious! Saving seeds for next year and every year after that God willing. A must tomatoe plant for the tomatoe lover.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Will definitely plant them again: I planted one of these in an old flower bed that used to be an iris bed. I put the plant in the ground later than I usually plant tomatoes and in no time it was flourishing. We had an incredible yield and I never fertilized even once during the summer. Just regular watering. No problems whatsoever. Will definitely buy again!
